I've narrowed down my acceptances to Maryland, UMDNJ, and Upenn. I'm a NJ resident, with a about a 50% chance that I will want to specialize. I have NO CLUE how to decide from here. Peter North needs advice

Can you shoot films from any location? Thats an important consideration.

Im not positive but I imagine UMDNJ will be cheaper for you since you are a resident. Also how eager are you to leave or stay in NJ. I think these are some of the more important questions. You will get into a speciality if you work hard, theres no getting around that. You cant just go to UPENN and assume you are going to get into speciality because of the name...it all comes down to the scores. Make some persoan decisions. Let preference play a big role and leverage your decision with some financial considerations. GL

Pete,
How'd you like UMD's new Dental School? I interviewed there and thought it was pretty nice. Personally, though, I think UMD is much too expensive for out of state. I'd rather go to PENN for just an extra 5K.

This is a very important consideration that I'll have to work out with production staff and may be the biggest decision factor. haha

While i felt equally at home at all three schools I found NJ to be much more affordable and a nice clinic but poor location, UPenn in a much better location and what seemed like a better currriculum approach and Maryland will have Beautiful facilites and real friendly faculty and staff.

Thanks for the warning, but i didn't see anything too alarming there and Newark isn't exaclty the hamptons either.

Thank you to all, I think i'll just draw a name out of a hat!
